Feet first ...

I don't know what happened... I just picked up the coloured wool instead of white I guess.  Funny how it goes.  Yesterday, I do remember thinking I was going to make arms next ..er ...wings, ... then, all of a sudden...feet were in my hands.















Looking at them next to the photo.... perhaps I might make them a bit larger...but, I will determine if they look a good size next to my own goosie.
















Happily...that sharp edge happened quite easily.  Much easier than I thought it could.  So.... I'm happy with them thus far... maybe add some wisps and make them a tad larger...but, other than that, some final tidying up .... figure out how to attach them .... with a bit more white upper leg it looks like from my photo...hard to see behind the wing there.... make a green scalloped bit to represent some frilly knickers... and then...on to the arms.... er ...wings.......















... and while goosie and I were playing in the kitchen.... my wordesk is my table most days...I did manage to bake some bread as well....















mmmmm...nothing better than home baked bread.   Haven't been doing any for weeks with the stupid ribs ... hurts to knead, even with just my left hand, and really, one hand is not enough to do a decent job of it. .... besides... my head just hasn't been in the game.  I'd probably forget yeast or something equally silly.  Today I feel almost human again though ... ....wheeeeee.... if this keeps up.....I'll be DANGEROUS!!!   Oh, please!!

Your Goosie is coming out nicely. You are doing a great job of it. Love the colour of the feet.
Glad to know your on the mend now.

You are accomplishing a lot as you mend, with your goose and the bread. Thanks for the mousie tip; I will take a look.

Just to say.....If you lived over here I would say post those trousers to me!! But its a long way from yours and the postage would be too much. Such a cold snowy day here - I have been happily sewing and watching the snowflakes fal

I'm sorry to hear about your ribs.

Thanks for your WOYWW visit. Apologies in getting back to you late.

Your bread looks great! I've been addicted to making bread ever since I discovered this no knead recipe:

Nothing beats the smell and taste of fresh homemade bread.

Happy Creating. xx
